Campus Life

Students Say

Quinnipiac is located in Hamden, Connecticut, a suburb of the city of New Haven. It has a population of just under 60,000 and is two hours north of New York City. Quinnipiac is “a beautiful campus located right outside of Sleeping Giant State Park.” It’s “safe and offers a great environment for learning and social life.” Another student claims that “when you step foot on QU grounds, you just want to grab a book and start studying.” The academic environment at Quinnipiac is described as “friendly, yet challenging” and “culturally diverse.” “When working on a team project, students are very professional and contribute equally to the work.” Students’ ages vary somewhat. “There are older students, such as myself enrolled in the program (age 40+), but the majority are just starting their careers.” They have a chance to mix by joining one of the “limited number of graduate clubs” avail- able, but, “the graduate population is not very interested in participating in additional activities or socials.” This may be because many older students have work and families. Due to their myriad obligations, “there is no time for life at school.” However, some sug- gest that “all the students are connected and stay so through a variety of ways, like going out for dinners, meeting for classes, etc.” Of those “‘older students’ “ some hope for “more programs and options.”
